Skinny Cucumber Margaritas
All of my cocktails are naturally “skinny” by design – I’ve never been a fan of sugary drinks and I’d rather spend the calories on chips and guac. This recipe makes two margaritas, which you can easily multiply. Make a pitcher for the weekend and share with friends (or yourself – been there, done that).
3 oz blanco tequila (Casamigos is my favorite!)
2 oz freshly squeezed lime juice
2 oz freshly squeezed cucumber juice
1 tbsp agave nectar
Splash of sparkling water
Sliced cucumbers for garnish
*To make the cucumber juice, you can either run a cucumber through a juicer, or peel/blend/strain a cucumber in a blender.
Add all of the ingredients to a cocktail shaker with a handful of ice cubes. Shake for 30 seconds and strain into a salt-rimmed margarita glass with fresh ice. Top with a splash of sparkling water and garnish with cucumber slices.
